Jon, there's a blade holder and a pulley with a belt in there, how to ii get the blade holder off the end of the shaft and how do i get the belt off of the pulley mounted on the shaft?Thanks,
Expert:  JON replied 2 months ago.

the blade adapter may need to be tapped off with a hammer. you will need to pry the belt off as you turn the blade adapter and let the adapter spin the belt off.
